Expected Completion of Works / Informal Re-Opening of Road – Unfortunately, the potential date for the re-opening of the road is no longer accurate. Due to some unexpected issues over the last few weeks, the completion of the works has been slightly delayed. However, the contractors are still confident that they will be in a position to re-open the road in mid to late October, so keeping to the originally specified timeline. They will provide a more precise date as soon as they can be confident of achieving this.
Official Event to Mark the Opening of the Reinstated Road – An agreed date for an official event to celebrate the re-opening of the road is Friday 26th October (note: the road is expected to be re-opened to traffic in advance of this date). Dr Sarah Wollaston MP has kindly agreed to attend for the occasion and it is hoped that a Government Minister will also attend. Whilst final details have yet to be agreed, the anticipated a start time is 11 a.m., convening around the Memorial at Slapton.
